I really appreciate that you take back that statement and I think it's a
of the high standard this mailing list has. So, "no worries".

As has been said before we got in contact with the Gimp and Inkscape
at the LGM in Lyon and they are well aware of the need for CMYK support.
Of course FOSS projects often lack manpower; and the direction the
takes often is more determined by the knowledge and interest of the
developers than by some product strategy.

AFAIK Inkscape will use the colorspace syntax of SVG colors to support CMYK.
I haven't followed the development after LGM but I've heard there already is
some progress.

Gimp is currently integrating the new GEGL library and it makes sense to
CMYK support until this framework is in place. I'm pretty sure that CMYK
(and other colorspaces) will follow shortly after.

Watch out for Krita from KDE, it sounds quite promising.
